I think you make some good points, although many of these options are improving.
The more people that have a fully non KYC stack, the better. But forward privacy is good too as you say - helps confuse surveillance companies, and keeps your behaviour private.
But the gov still knows the rough size of your stack. So, assuming you hold your own keys, we rely on having the power to control our Bitcoin. We have to stay strong to avoid pressure of 6102 style confiscation - I think a powerful industry (built off the back of KYC compliance) helps combat this actually.
